ARLB082 Texas schedules on-air ARES drills

Attention Texas hams!

Drills will be held on HF SSB October 7 and 21, 0001 to 2400 Central
time both days to help the Amateur Radio Emergency Service organize
a pool of Amateur Radio operators to be available during emergencies
in Texas.

The drills will begin on 3873 kHz at 0001 and switch to 7285 kHz at
0900, then return to 3873 when the band starts to change. Technician
class operators are invited to check into their local 2-meter nets
and have the net manager forward the information to the appropriate
Section Manager or to the HF Net.

Participation from hams in every Texas county is invited regardless
of RACES, ARES, club or group affiliation. Out-of-state hams are
welcome to check in. Following the drills, the Texas Department of
Public Safety's Division of Emergency Management will encourage all
emergency management offices to contact Amateur Radio resources if
state government HF radio resources are not available. Individual
hams are urged to contact local emergency management officials to
make them aware of their availability.

Texas hams should contact their Section Manager with any questions:
South Texas SM Ray Taylor, N5NAV,; North Texas SM Don
Mathis, KB5YAM,; West Texas SM Charles C. Royall,
